The Beckham boys are true “Bieliebers.” So much so that they suggested to their parents, David and Victoria Beckham, that they name their new sister Justine Bieber. The UK Daily Mail reports, David Beckham appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and discussed his feelings when he found out he was going to have a daughter, being a dedicated dad, his sons’ Bieber fever, and their outrageous name suggestion for their sister. Beckham began by telling the story of the rollercoaster he and Victoria went through before finding out they were having a baby girl. “We've got three beautiful boys and we're ecstatic to have another one on the way but when we first found out, we went for the scan and they said, "oh, it's a boy" and we were like "great" but Victoria was like, "Ahh, another penis in the house,” he said jokingly. 'She thinks there's too many in the house already. So then we went back for the next scan and they said, "oh, we think it's a girl". So we were like, "oh, ok, well, that's amazing,” he continued. “'And then on the final scan they said it's definitely a girl so, [it’s] incredible.” Beckham said he and Victoria asked their sons to give name suggestions prior to knowing the sex. One of his boys, Romeo, suggested Justin Bieber as a name. “When we got told it was a boy, …Romeo, my middle child was like, ‘Well, how ‘bout Justin Bieber as a name?’ Justin Bieber Beckham,”Beckham said. Kimmel commented, “That would be the most famous baby in the history of the world!” He continued, “So now we know it’s a girl, he’s like “Well, how ‘bout Justine, Bieber Beckham?’” Beckham says the name suggestion comes from his boys being Bieber fanatics. “The two youngest [boys] are huge fans [of Justin Bieber]. … They met him. We went to a concert a few months back, they loved it,” he said adding his youngest recently asked “do you think we could have a play date with Justin Beiber?’ to which Beckham said on the late night show, “I think he’s a little bit busy.” Beckham is a successful soccer star, but he always finds time to be a hands-on dad. He told Jimmy Kimmel he drops his boys off from school and picks them up everyday. He says his soccer schedule allows him to be the hands-on dad that he is. Beckham will take on daddy duties for the fourth time when his daughter with Victoria Beckham arrives in the summer.
